These Tried-and-Tested Ways Tips Will Help You To Improve Hair Density
No one wants thin, flat, limp hair. From haircare techniques to products and supplements, most of us are ready and willing to do pretty much anything and everything that will help us to achieve thicker, stronger, fuller locks. These tried-and-tested tips and product recommendations will help you to improve your hair density and achieve thick, strong hair once and for all.
What is hair density?
Hair density is basically the number of invidual strands of hair that you have per square inch on your head. This makes a big difference to the way that your hair feels and moves and amounts to how you describe your hair. If you consider your hair to be thick then it already has high density, but if you’d describe your hair as fine or thin then it has a low density. The average person has around 2,200 hairs on their head, but the average person also loses on average 50-100 hairs a day. Hair density can also correlate with hair colour and texture. For example, if you have fair or red hair, you’re likely to have thinner or finer hair than someone with dark hair.
How do you determine hair density?
The easiest way to assess your hair density yourself is to tie it back into a ponytail and measure the circumference. Make sure your hair is clean but dry and free from styling products as these may affect the density of your hair. If your ponytail is four inches or more in circumference then it is high-density. If it is less than two inches in circumference then it is low density, and if it is somewhere in between then it is medium density.
If you have short hair that you can’t get into a ponytail, then another way to assess your hair density is to look at your scalp. If you can easily see the skin of your scalp through your hair then it is low density, but if it’s hard to make out your scalp then you have high density hair.
How can you improve hair density?
If your hair is low density, employ these simple natural tips to easily achieve hair that has (or appears to have) a higher density.
Thickening shampoo and conditioner
Designed to create volume, thickness, and texture, shampoos that promise to improve density do so both in the long-term and the short-term. They contain fewer conditioning ingredients so won’t weight hair down, and instead help to add movement and give lift which immediately creates the illusion of thicker hair density. Philip Kingsley’s Body Building Weightless Shampoo is a firm favourite for celebrities and hair stylists.

Keep hair short-medium length
If your hair is low density and long, the length will weigh it down and cause it to look even thinner and stringier. Keep hair shorter and get your ends cut blunt and straight rather than layered to create the appearance of thicker density.
Heavy creams and rich butters will also weigh your hair down. When it comes to using haircare and styling products, opt for lighter formulas like sprays, mists, or mousses. You can also find styling products that are specifically designed to increase density so will make a massive difference in fine hair. Spritzing a little dry shampoo (like Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo) into your roots and is a quick and easy way to add lift and make hair instantly appear fuller.
Another way to fake the appearance of thicker hair density is the way that you style it. Using a ucrling tong to create even a few subtle waves in your hair gives it extra width, texture, and dimension which makes it appear fuller.
Exfoliate your scalp
To prevent buildup on your scalp (which weighs hair down from the roots) use a clarifying or exfoliating treatment on your scalp once a week. This will help to get rid of stubborn product residue, excess oils, and dry skin. Try Briogeo’s Scalp Revival Charcoal & Coconut Oil Micro Exfoliating Shampoo - you’ll notice instant lift and movement in your roots after use.
As well as heating a healthy, balanced, and oil-rich diet to get all the key nutrients your need to achieve stronger, denser hair, experts also recommend taking supplements to make a big difference. Look for a multivitamin with Omega 3 to stimulate hair follicle function and growth.
Knowing your hair density is really useful as it can impact how your style your hair, how you have it cut, and what products you need to use in it. Now that you're equipped with this hair-boosting knowledge you can easily achieve the thick hair of your dreams!

Why pH of skincare products is important?
The pH is defined as the negative logarithm (base ten) of the concentration of free hydrogen ions in aqueous solution. The pH of skin surface ranges from 4.5 to 6 making it slightly acidic. The acidic nature of the whole skin surface was first claimed by Heuss in 1892; however, the first scientific study was carried out by Schade and Marchionini in 1928, who called it the acid mantle. The “acid mantle” protects the skin by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic organisms, regulating keratinization, desquamation and wound healing. Any disruption in the acid mantle disrupts the activity of enzymes involved in barrier function and anti-microbial protection. The skin pH and the buffering capacity of the skin surface are made up of the components of the stratum corneum as well as the secretions from sebaceous and sweat glands. Sweat is an important contributor towards skin acidity owing to its content of amino acid, lactic acid, and urea, which supplement skin NMF levels. The formation of stratum corneum barrier requires enzymes that are pH dependent. Two lipid-processing enzymes β-glucocerebrosidase and acidic sphingomyelinase require a pH of 5.6 and 4.5, respectively. An increased skin surface pH activates enzyme serine proteases, which causes degradation of corneodesmosomes and affects the skin barrier. pH also has a big impact on the skin microbiome. The bactericidal activity, because of dermicidin and nitrites in sweat, occurs optimally at pH 5.5. The resident bacterial flora changes as pH increases causing increase in population and activity of P. acnes and Staphylococcus aureus which are responsible for acne and eczema. All these result in contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, acne vulgaris and Candida albicans infections. Products with high pH cause swelling of skin follicles affecting the permeability of the skin making it dry, sensitive, and susceptible. Most of the skincare products are formulated within the pH range of normal healthy skin except the exfoliating products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s), Vitamin C products and chemical peel which work at low pH. Facial oils, cleansing oils, balms are not pH dependent.

GRWM! New products and some old!
Hello everyone! I did another GRWM using some new and old products! First I started off with a primer. I used e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I was actually really surprised by this. It reminded me of Tachas silk canvas primer. It went on smoothly and did a good job of blurring my skin. I will say though after I looked at my makeup in the mirror up close it did settle a bit into my pores and my creases and was pretty noticeable. Overall I think this is a good product and will work for people with smoother skin. e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer Then I used the elf concealer. I love this concealer. I’ve used it so many other times in my other videos. WINKY LUX - Diamond Powder Foundation Then I used the winky lux foundation. This actually went on so nicely and was super natural looking. I love how it’s so weightless and decreases shine. I would recommend this for people with oilier skin. the CRÈME shop - "Macro Brow" Angled Brow Pencil + Spooley Then i used macro brow. This is just to fill in the last bits of my eyebrow to look fuller. It’s easy to use and has a great price point. I just wish the pigment was a little easier to apply. You have to push so hard. RITUEL DE FILLE - Rare Light Crème Luminizer My favorite brand of highlighters ever. Just so pretty and pigmented. All natural and cruelty free. An amazing brand overall. 💞 fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I used a tinted fresh lip treatment. Love the way they hydrate and the subtle color it gives off. They also smell and taste really good 😂. Hope you enjoyed getting ready with me! Let me know if you have any questions about the products I used.
